WICHITA — Wichita State University has announced the eight finalists in its Distinguished Scholarship Invitational.
The eight, all high school seniors, were chosen from a recent competition involving 346 students. Two of the finalists will be selected as recipients of the Harry Gore Memorial $48,000 scholarship, one of the largest undergraduate scholarships in Kansas.
To be invited to the competition, students must have an ACT score of 24 or higher and a minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA. Once invited, students complete a packet of information, including essays and letters of recommendation, and compete in an on-campus leadership competition.
Finalists will return to campus Wednesday for final interviews. The Gore Scholars will be announced the next day.
